Sightings Thread - Blenheim

Postby Meangreen » Thu Dec 18, 2008 6:02 pm

Well, since I'm here for the summer I thought I'd report on the stock stakes of my little hamlet.

At first look stocks are quite high.

The Warehouse (a day after the 50% off) had all premium deluxes and leaders, minus 'bee. All Uni deluxe waves 1,2 and 3. Plus various older movie waves bursting off the pegs. There was even a pile of Nightwatch Primes on the ground.

Ahh, yes, I remember it well. I was only living there for 9 months, but I kind of miss it actually. That's where I was when I really got back into TF's in a big way. I bought my first 2 Alternators from Farmers Blenheim.

Gonna be driving through there on my way to Christchurch in a week or two, looking forward to it.

Yeah, man, well I'm going to be there for three weeks, 3rd ish till the 25th ish (Jan). My wife is doing a course down there, so we're all going down for a holiday. I will have three kids to look after most of the time, but we should definitely catch up.

Heh, Damn Threadjackers!

It's a nice place to be sure Sooty. But it changes more and more to a place I don't like everytime I come back.

Anyway, I did the rounds today.

The Warehouse had nothing new from last time. Although quite a few movie deluxes had sold. I also noticed Animated Activators Megatron and Dirge. Not too sure if they're news though.

Farmers also had a pretty usual assortment of old movies stuff, as well as Uni Voyager repaints and a few uni deluxes, nothing past wave 2 though. No sign of the S.E. Uni deluxes or the combiners. Probably a few weeks til they're put out.

One thing that was interesting at farmers was an entire table covered in rows of movie deluxes. Like someone went mad and opened waaay too many cases.

Activators Thundercracker I've seen, but not Dirge. I wonder if that means Cliffjumper has been released...

Ahaha, there might be evidence of my mistake. I saw a blue seeker.... that is all.

Well, more and more vineyards for one... Used to be alot more relaxed too. Now walking around late at night is risky. I still like parts of here though.

Really? Concerned about getting tangled up in some grape vines?

Wierd. I used to walk home after work every night, about 10:30. Always felt reallt safe there. It's a shame if Blenheim is losing it's innocence.

Did the rounds again today.

Warehouse had nothing new since I last reported. Although much has been depleted.

Farmers seems to have the new stock that's being seen country-wide. Animated flying twins (Jet???) are there. A couple each of the Energon repaint combiners. Universe S.E. also present in numbers, I was tempted to get prime, looks very good in pack. Which release of this classics prime has the most "accurate" paint-job though? The last thing of significance was an animated Blitzwing, something I'd never seen before.

Well, I'm back here for a week or so. Let us see what there is to be seen...

Which is not that much unsurprisingly. Warehouse has about the same stock as most others, apart from generations of which only Thrust is present. They did still have a $25 animated Lugnut though.

Farmers is a little more interesting however. Masses of the early to mid ROTF releases. Icecream truck twins were nice to see. In addition to this there was also the more recent first wave yellow box stuff.

Absolutely nothing here that hasn't been seen over the whole country for the past few months.
